|The Ed Wynn Show (15 December 1949, Episode 13)|
An episode of the short-lived early TV comedy "The Ed Wynn Show". This weak episode was already out-dated when it aired (compared with other surviving kinescopes from this period), and fails to make good use of it's guests (Buddy Ebsen and Hattie McDaniel, who don't appear together at any time). The picture quality is atrocious, not caused by a bad encoding but by what looks like a video tape transfer from another video tape transfer of another video tape transfer of a 16mm kinescope made with f...

|1940's TV: ''Howdy Doody'' from 1949|
An 1940's episode of "Howdy Doody", I think this is from March 1949. This episode is complete with NBC-TV Promo, and two NBC-TV IDs. This program features music, comedy, and the infamous "re-purposed" silent film clip. All of this adds up to an entertaining half hour.

|1949 Public Service Announcement|
A 1949 Public Service Announcement aired on the DuMont Television Network, reminding the young viewers of "Captain Video" that "freedom is everybody's job". This features the same background as the 1950 PSA I uploaded. DuMont was a cheap network, but in fact, they did a lot of good things, like airing the complete McCathy hearings (sadly no footage remains from their coverage). One must give them credit for good intentions.

|Theatrical Trailer for ''Cabin in the Sky''|
Theatrical trailer for the 1943 musical "Cabin in the Sky", starring Ethel Waters, Eddie 'Rochester' Anderson, and Lena Horne. The film is notable for having an all African-American cast, for being the first film directed by Vincente Minnelli, and for having an inane & unneeded "apology" message on the DVD release. Yet they didn't apologise for "So Long Oolong" in "Three Little Words" or for having Mickey Rooney play Lorenz Hart in "Words and Music", oddly enough.

A collection of US commercials for products you can no longer buy. Forgive me if there's any mistakes. Sometimes the brand is still around but the exact product is gone (such as with "Futurama" lipstick by Revlon), sometimes both the product and brand are gone (such as with "Tip Toni"). Some only exist in-name-only, while at least one product is no longer available in the US but is still sold in another country...
